brine unloading facility

Brine Unloading Facility

McKim & Creed provided engineering and permit support services for the client’s brine unloading facility in Marshall County, West Virginia. The system is designed to receive up to 20,000 barrels per day (bbl/day) of produced and hydrofracturing flowback water. Water will be delivered to the facility by truck though four dedicated truck unloading bays. This water will be treated and stored at the facility before being transferred to an existing storage and transport system. The facility is designed with a processing system
that includes a truck unloading area, a tank battery, a treatment area, and a multipurpose building. The treatment process includes filtration, solids removal and handling, oil/water separation. The design includes elevated walkways and platforms for equipment access, containment for the entire process, H2S handling systems, and a building to house pumping, controls, and electrical equipment. The facility is designed based on trucking operations occurring 12 hours per day, seven days per week.
